Bit By the Fit Bug ;)

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Well now, there was a good long stretch there where all this fitness and tracking were really a struggle! For many weeks there I had been limping along (figuratively speaking;) trying to get in some kind of work out, but mostly begrudgingly, and feeling stressed and strapped for time. And as far as food was concerned, I felt a strong resistance to any sort of weighing, measuring, counting, planning, etc. Throughout that period, I'm pleased to note that I did keep up the effort, Herculean though it was, and mostly maintained, but at the end there I gained back a few hard lost pounds (which I have since shed, and then some!) I'd like to trace it back to it's roots (right about the time I caught a lingering cold virus, and then my computer...I mean my main Spark connection!...caught a special virus of its own...) because I'd like to think I could circumvent that sort of setback spiral if I can spot it coming. Right now though, I'm back in my groove! My sweetiepea reminded me one day about a wii fitness game (EA Sports ACTIVE Personal Trainer) which we had not sought out, but somehow acquired, and I decided to give it a whirl. And that was the start of my most recent 30 day challenge! Then my sweet love found a great deal on a FitBit which I've been eyeing for awhile and that removed my last barrier to tracking. Now I let the fit bit track my fitness and I'm back to tracking meals. And loving it!! :0)

WooHoo! "Spark Cheers"

    I think you'll find that you will really, really like the FitBit. I've had one since 2009. FitBit has some of the best customer service I've ever seen and they really back their product.
